Why Pop Culture Loves The RPG-7 - Loadout

From Call of Duty to Resident Evil, the RPG-7 is the quintessential pop culture rocket launcher. It’s a weapon that has often been used to dial up the explosive action in movies and video games for decades even if those depictions haven’t always been entirely accurate. With the help of Keeper of Firearms & Artillery, Jonathan Ferguson, we’ve come to the Royal Armouries museum in the UK to learn more about the RPG-7’s real world and pop culture history, and examine how games portray this iconic weapon.

In this episode of Loadout, Dave Jewitt visits the Royal Armouries to talk to Keeper of Firearms & Artillery Jonathan Ferguson to break down the RPG’s long and storied history.
